Senior Executive Team


Amanda Hobson

Chief Financial Officer and Vice-President, Finance and Corporate Services

Amanda joined BCLC as a Finance Director in 2013. Her effort, dedication and accomplishments were quickly rewarded with a rapid progression to CFO and VP, Finance and Corporate Services by December 2014. Amanda now leads a team of more than 100 staff and is responsible for the financial management, procurement, and corporate services of an organization with two offices, approximately 850 staff, and more than $3 billion in revenue. Amanda’s commitment to organizational excellence has made her instrumental in transforming BCLC’s finance function to best support the business through a period of rapid change in which it delivered record profits to the Province of B.C.  She is currently leading the redevelopment of the Corporation’s head office in Kamloops, B.C.

Amanda serves on the Board of Directors for the Interprovincial Lottery Corporation and is a valued member of its Audit and Risk Committee. She is a member of the BC Council of CFOs and plays a leadership role on its Crown Corporations sub-committee. In 2017, Amanda was the recipient of the Business in Vancouver BC CFO award in the Emerging Leader Category.

Passionate about leadership and talent development, Amanda is a highly respected leader at BCLC. She is a strong advocate for the development and success of women at BCLC through her role in AIM (Acts of Kindness, Inspire, Mentor), a grassroots group that was formed at BCLC to bring a community of women together for professional development, empowerment, and access to senior leadership.

Prior to joining BCLC, Amanda worked in public practice at Deloitte and held various positions in the energy sector, leading financial reporting, treasury, investor relations and other finance functions for public and private companies.
